Sadly as I predicted my school team were ravaged by a better disciplined group playing as a team rather than individuals, the score 10-0. They complain when I try to impart a formation (4-3-3) and when I ask them to practice, perhaps now they will start to listen? I was told they “do not like my system and style of play”, I have never been on the end of a 10 goal reversal in my life! The phoenix may yet emerge from the ashes of despair we witnessed yesterday. Alien concepts such as marking, tracking back and pressing will hopefully become auto responses when they pull on their very multi-coloured boots. At least we have now re-enforced that we have no stars and that teacher Gary may actually have been right all along….blue moon rising!
